After 30 years of...

After 30 years of paddling, both whitewater and touring, I’ve finally settled into my happy place with the Swift Adirondack 12. Its incredible light weight, efficiency in the water and frankly, beautiful looks, make the Adirondack 12 a joy to paddle. As a photographer and dog lover I appreciate the large cockpit entry. And the cockpit itself has plenty of room for both my photo equipment and my mini Aussie, Astrid, who can often be found sleeping near the forward bulkhead. This small package provides big paddling adventure and that’s paddling the dream!
